MEETING THE REQUIREMENTS OF A GROWING SCHOOL SYSTEM
Henry County Schools is one of the largest school systems in Georgia. The ongoing challenge is to reduce overcrowding and the use of modular classrooms by providing a sufficient number of brick-and-mortar classrooms for the county’s growing student population.
Hampton High School is a prototypical design adapted to its site. MSSA has extensive experience in the design and site adaptation of prototypical school facilities. This option offers a school system many advantages: design consistency among schools, savings in design costs and time, more precise cost projections, and reduced review time for the county building department. Hampton High completes the site, which is shared with Rocky Creek Elementary and Hampton Middle, with the middle and high schools sharing athletic facilities and the bus loop.
